I got accepted to Nottingham Trent University, University of Sheffield, City University London, University of Westminster and University of the Arts London. (All conditional offers). I am deciding between University of Sheffield and City University London. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Which one is best for you depends on a lot of factors, such as the course modules, way it is taught, how the uni itself looks, the sort of area you want to live for 3+ years etc. Also if you haven't already visited them both I strongly suggest you do that before making a decision, you can think a uni is your ideal choice on paper but after visiting it your opinion can completely change. I personally have experience of this and know others who have too.
I was a bit surprised at the conditions for City London, as they were much higher then Sheffields. I also did a ranking search, and Sheffield stands in the top 100 universities in the world. City, however, its in the 370 range. Why is that? Shouldn't the "better" university have higher standards?
whilst sheffield is supposedly better overall, City is the most prestigious Journalism school and apparently the best in the country. but again, its where you will feel most comfortable and enjoy the course.
